Will you still play the lottery if Bernie gets elected? His huge taxation is going to hit millionaires and billionaires. Since his tax plans like for instance FREE college and University tuition will cost us tax payers $70 Billion a year.. I know i will not play the lottery if that guy gets it

Bernie would be a great President! No, I'm serious! I am not saying I with him on everything, but he is raining issues that America really needs to address. The crazy part of this election is, we are all looking for a candidate, who will solve everything, when we need a President who will challenge us and make us think.

We all get a lot out of lotteries!

    Hi Tony, I live in Sweden, with a long tradition of socialism. We have free schools and our lotterys are tax free also.

    So how is all that free stuff paid for?

      Maybe should rephrase your question.... "Will you continue to work for a living if Bernie wins the W.H."?

        That's a much better question. What kind of an answer do you suppose you'll get from somebody whose plan is to vote for a candidate based on the fantasy of winning a multi-million dollar jackpot instead of the reality of working for a living?

          Look up Barry Goldwater/ Walter Mondale my young apprentice. Take a lesson from history. 

          It's possible the 2016 election could be a far right Cruz against a far left Sanders.

            Point being: Promising tons of " Free Stuff" makes a Great conversational piece for people yearning to hear those kinds of messages, but delivering on those promises is something else altogether.The  President of the USA is not a dictator, so good luck trying to get those proposals through Congress.

              I will keep playing the lottery if Bernie wins... a lot of what Bernie is proposing will never get past congress anyway...which is why i chuckle and shake my head every time he opens his mouth. It actually irritates me when these candidates make proposals knowing it doesn't stand a chance in congress...it's like they think we are stupid. Why not run on proposals that actually stand a chance....then i will listen and you might get my vote...otherwise, your wasting my time babbling.

                Exactly.  What gets me is that Bernie is targeting these young College kids who should have a head on their shoulders but no- they hear " Free, Free" and suddenly they on a crusade. I know politicians have to promise stuff, but frankly Bernie is the worst of the bunch to have come along in a long time. The reason he is an independent is because he likes going it alone, his fellow Senate Democrats have heard his speech for decades & figured out it's unworkable. So is he & his disciples under the impression that if he wins the nomination that he gets to rewrite the democratic platform? When l see him waving his hands & raising his voice, l think of the Bugwan Rajneesh. All that's missing on these kids is dots on their foreheads. ..then again maybe they are there.

                  If Bernie wins the WH, I think we have more to worry about than tax on the lottery.

                    So how is all that free stuff paid for?

                    With taxes of course.

                    But I rather have schools funded by taxes than lotteries. Same with healtcare.

                            I thought a convicted felon couldn't vote.  I don't know for sure that you are one, just figured it was a safe bet, what with you being so dishonest and all.

                            "ROTFLMFAO".   You got the "FA" part right, anyway, fits you to a "T".
